What did Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired need?

Serena helped Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired create or update copy for a manual for the organization's volunteers so they have all the who's, what's, how's and why's in one place.

Why is this project important?

Vista Center currently has over 200 volunteers. In order to achieve our mission and goals for the next 2-3 years, we need to significantly increase our volunteer team. Due to current restraints for meeting in person, we also need to develop the orientation and training to be delivered via a Zoom-based platform. Previous delivery method has been one-on-one or a group meeting. We have a dynamic volunteer management team, that includes individuals who are blind or have low vision.

This project will save us $1,480, allowing us to meet our strategic and revenue goals, and volunteers are integral to achieving our mission and revenue goal.

I am currently a PhD candidate studying modern Chinese history, with a concentration on the Republican era. My second and third fields are political history and gender studies. My current research is on the history of Chinese women in the modern public consciousness, particularly the agency of women in Chinese politics during the twentieth and early twenty-first century. Outside of my studies, I am interested in promoting communication across cultures (especially Chinese and American culture) starting with language.
